These resources for Public Service managers were produced by the Employee Assistance Services (EAS) Bureau with Treasury Board funding. Preparing for and Responding to Workplace Trauma: A Manager's Handbook and the more comprehensive Preparing for and Responding to Workplace Trauma: A Manager's eGuide are intended to help managers develop and maintain a supportive environment for employees who experience a traumatic workplace event and to support the delivery of critical services to Canadians during and after a major traumatic event. The information offered in these documents is based on current knowledge and practice derived from research and case reports, the practical experiences of human service workers and the personal experiences of disaster victims.
Any individual wishing to talk to a counsellor or to make an appointment should call their Employee Assistance Program, or if necessary, their local hospital emergency department for immediate medical assistance.
